Hamza Ali Abbasi started his career a decade back and made a name for himself as a bright star. With impressive performances in Pyare Afzal, mann mayal on TV and films like Main Hoon Shahid Afridi, Waar and JPNA to his credit, he soon became a heartthrob who had following in both men and women. He is very vocal regarding his political association and conducts a talk show on one TV channel too.
In Parwaaz Hai Junoon he plays a PAF fighter pilot which is understandable considering he has a license to fly a plane. He is paired with Hania Aamir in the film and can be seen without a beard and moustache, an act that makes him look younger too.
